Book Review: The Resilient Leader

We’re all in a storm these days especially considering today’s contentious political, racial, and pandemic climates.  Building resilience in life isn’t as easy as it sounds, but with the right support, it might actually be simpler than you think. In The Resilient Leader, author Christine Perakis shares strategies you can use to navigate life and business. Christine tells her tale of surviving not one but two Category 5 hurricanes. But she does so by weaving leadership principles into her tale.

Christine Perakis has created seven resilience strategies that you can use to get through whatever your disruptive environment throws at you to create life and career invincibility and come through any challenge thriving.

In The Resilient Leader, she discusses:

  • The 7 Barometers of Pandemic Preparedness for Small Businesses
    • Barometer #1 – Create a float plan for success – one page strategic business plan
    • Barometer #2 – “Keep on hand on the boat” – self-awareness, set the rules and lead by example
    • Barometer #3 – Expedition planning and preparation allow for situational readiness – create systems to keep your team motivated
    • Barometer #4 – Leadership vision – see possibilities of your situation, move forward as a leader
    • Barometer #5 – Don’t go it alone – expand team capabilities
    • Barometer #6 – Communication is critical – “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.”
    • Barometer # 7 – Develop good judgement – practice good decision-making models
  • The 3 Things Senior Leaders Must Do During a Crisis
    • Create a new float plan, redefine your vision, and commit to deepening your relationships with people
  • Creating a “Float Plan” For Dealing with Business Disruption
  • Evaluating and Motivating Your Team During (and After) a Disaster
  • How to Make Crucial Decisions Before It’s Too Late
  • Creating a Communication Plan (both corporate and individual)

Life may not be smooth sailing, but with strategies to build strength, you can survive the storms to become invincible in any weather. It’s time to take control.

I would recommend this book to anyone along the journey of business improvement. The Resilient Leader is full of actionable wisdom from real life survival experience.
